Description

This sewing machine foot is used to create a hem that is barely visible from the front. This makes it well suited for sewing garments, especially formal wear, or for curtains. A special stitch is required to do this. For non-stretch materials such as cotton, you will want to select a blind hem stitch on your sewing machine (it usually has a symbol that looks like a large zigzag stitch pointing to the left with a straight stitch between). For stretch fabrics, the blind hem stitch which is better suited looks like a large zigzag with small zigzags in between. The fabric is folded in such a way that the stitch is sewn on the fold, with the foot guide against the fold. Once opened out again, only the peak of the intermittent large zigzag shows through on the front side of the fabric as a tiny stitch. The sewing machine foot guide can also be used for edge joining, topstitching, making pintucks or to stitch in the ditch.

Universal Snap-on Feet will attach to low or high shank sewing machine adapters. If you aren’t sure if this will fit your machine, check out our sewing machine feet guide.

All fabrics will be cut as a continuous piece unless you ask us otherwise. In the unlikely event this isn’t possible we will always contact you first. 

Our fabrics are all hand cut with care, never torn.

We recommend that all of our fabrics are washed at 30°c or below to improve fabric durability and colour vibrancy.

We try to match the colours in our photos as closely as possible but some differences may occur.
